Good Morning friends! I don’t know about you, but so far this Fall I have been super busy! Paul, Riley, and I attended the Canine Carnival in Syracuse, NY last weekend to represent Coddled Canine and sell some products. We had a blast! It was so cool to meet customers face-to-face, since we sell almost completely online! I am looking forward to opportunities to do more events like that.
Now that we’ve settling back in at home after a busy weekend away, I want to talk about dog parks. When we were searching for housing, we needed something that was dog-friendly. We found our current apartment complex which is very pet friendly and even has a dog park! We thought that was awesome! After living here for a couple months, however, I realized that we tend to keep Riley away from other dogs we encounter. I think it is actually the responsible thing to do. Let me explain more.
Good Morning my friends! Today starts the first day of my new job in PA and I am very excited! I hope you have a great day full of fun adventures! I know I will learn and experience a lot today. I want to share with you an event that just happened to Riley and I on our routine walk. It just goes to show that you can never be fully prepared to deal with life!
Hello and thank you for taking time to read my blog today! I think that today is a good day to tell you the story about our big hike we went on this past Spring. I know I’ve mentioned it in a few of my past blogs and now I will share the highlights of the hike Paul and I took Riley on. Enjoy!
It was the beginning of April when the snow finally melted and Paul and I were itching to get outside and go on an adventure. So we began to plan. We decided to take Riley on an adventure to the Catskills in New York. The trail went up three peaks and then we would turn around at the peak of the third mountain and hike back up the previous two peaks to get home. In total the hike was about 10 miles and five peaks. We knew Riley was pretty well conditioned because we were taking him on regular hikes but we wanted to make sure to keep an eye on him in case he needed to be carried. We packed lots of layers to stay warm, snacks, treats, and water. Now, the scariest part of the trip was going to be the Cornell Crack. There wasn’t much information we could find about it so we decided we would decide how to handle it when we got there. If we couldn’t handle it safely enough, we could just turn around. What is adventure without a little bit of the unknown anyways?!
Hello and thank you for reading my post today! I want to talk to you about the coolest thing I’ve recently learned about owning a dog. I’ve had Riley for over 8 years and my 8.6 pound Papillon is stilling teaching me new tricks every day. Way back when my family was doing research about which breed to get, we were looking for a small, intelligent dog, who was easy to train and friendly to everyone they meet. As Riley grew, we trained him to the best of our abilities and played with him every day. I rarely took him on walks. I was under the impression that small dogs don’t need much exercise. Only since Riley, Paul, and I all moved in together, did we start taking Rye-Guy out on walks regularly. Let me tell you what Riley has taught me.
